Prancing Novelist PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Prancing Novelist free pdf One of the most penetrating and sympathetic explorations ever undertaken by one writer into the mind of another, Prancing Novelist is far more than a simple tribute or work of research. In these pages--by turns instructive, mischievous, and even gossipy--Brigid Brophy seeks nothing less than a vindication of the eternal liveliness of fiction itself against the persistent rumors that it is dying or dead. Though serious in intent, Prancing Novelist is not only a monument to Firbank, but is also a delightful showcase for Brophy's own uproarious prose, not to mention her genius for telling good stories.

She also wrote a number of works of nonfiction, which included books on Aubrey Beardsley and Mozart, as well as the infamous Fifty Works of English Literature We Could Do Without.
